Veggies, fruits and fitness will protect you & loved ones
But you can reduce your chances of getting “The Big C” by making good lifestyle choices
Booting cigarettes out of your life is one good choice.
Cutting back on alcohol and eating more fruits and vegetables are two more.
Paying attention to your health is more important than ever on the heels of the national United Health Foundation’s report naming Louisiana the “least healthy” state in the nation for 2006.
The picture painted by the respected research group isn’t pretty.
“Louisiana is 50th this year, a position it has held for 14 of the 15 editions of this report,” the foundation said in its grim analysis.
In our exclusive 10-part series, the Herald-Guide will take a closer look at the major health problems facing Louisiana and St. Charles Parish. As identifed by the state, the big issues are obesity, asthma, diabetes, mental health, heart disease, premature death, smoking, children in poverty, the uninsured, and flu.
We will explore ways to preserve your health, and the health of your loved ones, through all available resources. We’ll provide you with wellness options. Don’t miss a single installment - your health is important.
